Well, we’ve tried both using it and not using it, and regardless, the wait time stays the same.
But I get what you mean. If anyone else stumbles upon this with the same issue and is using PID, try to make sure that it’s not your incorrect gains that are causing the long rise time.
Well guys, if anyone else was looking for a “solution”, we mounted the quadrometric encoders on our robot earlier today and all movements are far sped up. We were previously using the internal motor encoders. So… I guess that’s sort of a solution? Be wary about getting encoders though, we ordered ours last month and despite the fact that our meeting place is probably only 10-15 mins from RobotMesh, we only got them now. Though to be fair, there was a large snow storm these last 4-5 days. Anyhow, if anyone was wondering, just mount encoders I guess.
